The Couple Next Door
- By: Shari Lapena
- Narrated by: Kirsten Potter
- Length: 8 hrs and 40 mins
People are capable of almost anything. Fast-paced and addictive, The Couple Next Door announces a major new talent in thriller writing. You never know what's happening on the other side of the wall. Your neighbour told you that she didn't want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn't stand her crying. Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you live only next door. You'll have the baby monitor, and you'll take it in turns to go back every half hour.
An enjoyable listen

Is this meant to be a joke?
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A better plot, more believable characters, an ending that did not feel as if the writer had become desperate to finish it!
Has The Couple Next Door put you off other books in this genre?
Not at all!
Would you be willing to try another one of Kirsten Potter’s performances?
Almost certaintainly not.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
..Anger that something so poor could have received recommendations from publishers and reviewers.
Any additional comments?
A good idea wasted is my reaction.
